Following on from their successful summer series of Connect & Create online workshops, City of Sanctuary UK have received funding from the Barrow Cadbury Trust to further develop the model in response to the ongoing Covid-19 health pandemic.
The initial workshops included theatre, song-writing, filmmaking and a ‘rest & relax’ yoga session. They are now seeking proposals from a wider range of artform practitioners to deliver sensitive, fun and interactive online workshops between January and March 31st 2021.
Participants will mainly be people seeking sanctuary, many of whom are vulnerable and isolated. Previous sessions included CoS volunteers and other people from across the UK who were also struggling with the isolation of lockdown and reduced social contact. We would like to continue including the wider community as it helps to build solidarity between people seeking sanctuary and people living in communities across the UK.
Deadline for proposals: 11am on 5 January 2021
